The Board of the EPT is determined to see a high performing Multi-Academy Trust that delivers the very best educational experience for our pupils with an ethos of collaboration and excellence.

The Board of Directors delegates responsibility for the performance of the Trust, including the performance of the academies within the Trust, to the Chief Executive. However, some responsibilities concerning the performance of each academy are delegated to the Local Governing Body.

Local Governing Bodies

Each academy has a Local Governing Body, whose governance role is to oversee the running of the academy on behalf of the Trust. For more information on each of our Local Governing Bodies please see the individual school’s website, below are the names of the Chairs of our Local Governing Bodies.
